BEST HEALTH FOOD STORE
BIG CARROT 348 Danforth, 416-466-2129 Maybe it’s the inspiring co-op structure or the fact that it helped develop the first and only natural mall in the city, Carrot Common, whose courtyard
doubles as a great place to peoplewatch or get a 10-minute shiatsu treatment under the trees. Maybe it’s the amazing selection of organic produce, the aisles of GMO- and refined-sweetener-free foods. Or the fact that it’s out-and-out banned those ingredients, plus about a dozen more. Did we mention that the supplement and body care sections are so big and bountiful, they basically have their own separate stores within the Common (where super-knowledgeable staff dole out advice to boot)? If any locally owned health store can steal customers away from corporate mega-grocers and keep ’em, it’s this one, and we love ’em for it.
